Safe and sustainable photo on demand synthesis of polypeptide precursors Promising building

Animals such as spiders make fibers strong and elastic. These fibers have a polypeptide structure and serve as inspiration for research on the development of functional materials. Alpha-amino acid N-carboxyanhydrides (NCAs) are artificial polypeptide precursors, but they are difficult to produce. Using the photo-on-demand method they previously developed, a research group synthesized NCA in a … Read more
